China Develops Artificial Intelligence ‘Prosecutor’ to Charge People with Crimes

Scientists in China have reportedly developed an artificial intelligence program able to file criminal charges. 

The artificial intelligence “prosecutor” is given a verbal definition of a case and then decides whether or not to file charges, per BizPacReview

The prosecutor files charges with a 97 percent accuracy rate and was created to reduce actual prosecutors’ workload. 

“The system can replace prosecutors in the decision-making process to a certain extent,” Shi Yong, director of the Chinese Academy of Sciences’ big data and knowledge management laboratory, said. 

The “prosecutor” can currently identify eight different crimes including credit card fraud, gambling-related offenses, reckless driving and theft, and researchers hope the program will be able to identify more in the future. 

Researchers developed the program using data from over 17,000 cases between 2015 and 2020. 

The program is designed to update existing artificial intelligence technologies used by Chinese prosecutors as these older programs “do not participate in the decision-making process of filing charges and [suggesting] sentences,” Yong said.
